The Roots of Violent Radicalisation

7 February 2012 |

The Home Affairs Committee publishes its report on The Roots of Violent Radicalisation today, the result of a wide-ranging inquiry that began in May 2011 (2010-12 HC 1446).

In dealing with the laws relating to the proscription (banning) of organisations, the Committee draws heavily on evidence submitted by Professor Clive Walker of the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, School of Law, to emphasise the importance of reviewing the list of proscribed organisations — the prospect of de-proscription could in certain circumstances create an incentive for organisations to renounce their support for violence.

Professor Walker has researched and written extensively on terrorism matters, including in his recent book, Terrorism and the Law, see
